    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? Alder body makes it lighter than my previous Variax 700(black)which was Mahogany, Sounds more organic and even better after the update. Variax model selector now has a led light that will display name of selected bank, nice addition! Alnico single coils sound warmer than their Strat sound counterpart but the hum when using overdrive/distortion can be annoying sometimes, but that's normal on Alnico single coils pickups, It came with two lithium battery packs and USB PC/Mac connector which was great! As for the looks; is a nice classic sunburst paint and comfortable body. Neck is a little bit thicker than my old Variax 700 and it seems like there's no varnish on it, but the difference is not a big deal, at least for me, still plays fast. Comes with 010 D'Addarios, generic locking tuners, great action setup and mostly in tune (thanks American Musical Supply). My only big complain is about the Line 6 gig back...as it looks so cheap and poorly padded. I own 3 other Variax instruments all three of them have nice padded professional looking gig back this one is mediocre as best. All in all is a great instrument I wish I could by all models!

    What is your opinion of this product? I've had the JTV69S for about a week and have played it every day for at least 4-5 hours a day. At my first rehearsal with a full band, I used 7 different settings and they all fit perfectly within the mix. I did have to spend about an hour making some string height and bridge adjustments right out of the box. The sound of the JT just on it's own is outstanding without the modeling. Neck is like butter. Very impressed. Can't put it down.

    What is your opinion of this product? 5 star. I love it. Great sound I've told a bunch of people about already. Only thing is the strings buzz. Working on that issue

    What is your opinion of this product? Disappointing, to say the least. Had trouble with it from the get go. Can't play with nine gauge strings, they'll pop out of the finger nut. and with any gauge string, the high E slips down off the neck when soloing. neck joint is a bit hinky. But the worst is the bridge saddle design - it ensures that when you change strings, the tremolo springs cause the whole bridge to pop up and off the two mounting posts and smash the tremolo block against the interior wood of the guitar, no big deal except they mounted the pc board for the piezos right there so it is guaranteed to be smashed quite dramatically every time you change the strings. they could have prevented this with a half penny's worth of plastic stopper. pitiful oversight. two smashes and my jtv 69 was out of commission with all kinds of electronic glitches. had to spend about 80 bucks to send it back for warranty because unless you live in a big city, there aren't many Line6 service centers. Good idea poorly executed.
